Lots of info:
Sharp jolt on Hamakua on the first and largest.
You don't feel quakes like that if you're in the car. I know that from experience. The motion of the car and maybe the stabilizers will mask even a good sized shake.
Looks like a lucky day for us all.
Mahalo Dusty for the info
Sue - you'll know an oh-oh when you feel and hear it.........generally around a 5, but there's lots varying factors - depth, soil composition. I've lived in SoCal nearly all my life and have experienced some whoppers, the first in 1971. About a year ago we had a very shallow quake of around 3.5, but it was practically under our house - it sounded like an explosion in the middle of night - even set off car alarms, but no shaking.
Sue, it's greatly related to the location of the quake and the depth. A 3.2 only a few miles underground and close to you is totally different than a 3.2 many miles underground (or underwater) and out in the middle of nowhere!
I've had some good shaking from quakes that were only in the high 2's........just due to these factors---and felt almost nothing from larger ones. There's no way to 'brightline' a quake.
Thanks, Little Puppies and Big Dog! LOL
The 3.2 originated on Big Island, so I guess 'right under us'. My first thought was that a gas water heater had exploded -- but the heater in the house we were renting was electric. There was a bang and small items in the house 'jumped'. The bridge players next door didn't miss a bid.
Hi Dusty, don't rule out a quake in Minn. (Never say Never.) About a couple of months ago there was an earthquake which I believe was near Washington, D.C. and it was felt for many, many miles. Heard reports of someone in Mich claiming to have felt it.
Have you seen any Palm Trees yet?
